    ??!!!!!
    Ok, this IS surprising. I expected something like Tchikovsky or Beethoven or... or Grieg! I have to confess I didn't even know Gershwin composed piano concerto!
    Wow! I really can't wait to see these!!

    Concerto in F is actually what is commonly called Rhapsody in Blue.

    No, they are two different pieces: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concerto_in_F_(Gershwin)
    Concerto in F is a composition by George Gershwin for solo piano and orchestra which is closer in form to a traditional concerto than the earlier jazz-influenced Rhapsody in Blue. It was written in 1925 on a commission from the conductor and director Walter Damrosch.
    ...
    The concerto is in the traditional three movements:

    Allegro
    Adagio - Andante con moto
    Allegro agitato
    I think it's great skating music!

    Are you sure...? I tried Concerto in F in youtube and yes, there were some similarities(probably because both were composed by Gershwin) but they were very different.

    That is so funny! Evan and Yu-na really did switch music. Maybe she will wear a tux and he will wear a red sequined outfit

    In all seriousness, I think that is great music for her, surprising because I thought she would be doing something more dramatic,like Mao's Freeskate and Gershwin has such a light side.

    I am trying not to say anything mean until I hear the cuts for her short, but really? 007? That is so Brian Joubert trying to be macho. Not lovely, elegant, graceful sexy yu-na. Please say it is not this:

    I can hardly describe how much I was surprised when I heard about this music.
    I guess, no one expected this...

    As I know, that won't be any specific theme in particular, but some composition of various themes from different movies. That has to be dynamic somehow, as much, as the Danse Macabre was.

    I think Orser and Wilson determined to make very original choice. I think 007 is a great choice.

    Well obviously I blew that call! ROFL. I had a friend give me that info, but it was one of several selections on a Gershwin CD entitled "Rhapsody in Blue" so after listening to several versions of Concerto in F on YouTube, I recognize the piece. Emily Hughes used it at 2005 nationals.

    I think Yu-Na's music is a nice surprise, especially since I was expecting (and dreading) Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2.

    I'm quite looking forward to the sensual James Bond medley.

    I had expected something more feminine, ice-princess music, like her LP last season. But it seems a lot more interesting than typical music like Miss Saigon.
    I guess Wilson wanted to make very unique, artistic pieces with more contemporary twists. The TAT team is very classical so that it may be a nice contrast. I only hope that it wouldn't be too difficult as Jeff's original LP for the Olympic season.
